Sky Live: Chasing The Dream

NXTGEN

As Joshua Buatsi and Lawrence Okolie prepare for their next professional fights on the NXTGEN bill at York Hall on Friday, Sky Sports is delighted to announce that viewers can chart their rise to professional stardom this October on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Mix.

Chasing The Dream is a 4 x 60-minute series produced by Wilson Worldwide Productions that gives the audience unprecedented access into the world of three successful amateur Olympic boxers, Okolie, Buatsi and Anthony Fowler, as they take the giant leap into the professional arena.

Chasing The Dream, which will air in October, explores each man's journey as he embarks on the most important step of his career with features from household boxing names including Lennox Lewis and Carl Froch.

WWP chief executive Josh Wilson, who is also the executive producer said: "British boxing is on the rise. With its current popularity, we explore the future of its new stars. Is it the same industry it's always been? Has Anthony Joshua, with a respected and humbled demeanour, set a new trend of how British boxers should carry themselves? We explore this and more in four gruelling, yet uplifting programmes."

WWP secured their first Sky commission in December with Mission Mudder on Sky Sports Mix.
